Dungarees, denim, jeans.
Let's face it. Most of us are sporting commodity denim-prewashed, pre-faded, made-in-a-factory duds. If you want to experience the real thing, check out the American-made jeans from Two Jacks Denim. The Uptown shop’s small collection of raw and selvedge dungarees come from designers who work with a handful of textile mills only found in the United States and Japan. While some of the materials come from Japan, every pair in the store was made in the good ol’ US of A. Each brand has its own story, from how the Oregon inmates earn a living wage making Prison Blues to the three founders of Taylor Stitch who partnered with a multigenerational family of shirt makers.
